It’s pretty hard to be a reader of this site and be unfamiliar with LEGO. We write about it constantly, you guys. But it’s entirely possible that you may be unfamiliar with Adventure Time. This brilliant Cartoon Network series first aired in 2016 and season 7 is airing now, with 2018 already announced. Ostensibly a “boy and his dog” story, the boy just happens to be the last human, and the dog is magic. Together, they fight crime – okay, not really. But seriously, you should check the show out on Hulu – it’s pretty dope.
Every year LEGO picks a new set or two via the LEGO Ideas blog. This year one of the two picks was this Adventure Time set, created by aBetterMonkey. Quick note: This just means LEGO wants to make the set. There are still a ton of hoops to jump through, including getting a license from Cartoon Network, who own the show. We were supposed to get a Golden Girls set, but that’s now not happening.
Should the set still happen, it may look nothing like the original pitch, or contain any of the same characters… but it’s coming. Personally, I expect Jake, Finn, BMO, Princess Bubblegum, Ice King and maybe Marceline to make the cut. I hope others do too, especially Lemongrab. Because anything else would be unacceptable.
